What I Would Like to Accomplish
Homeowner ROI - Every dollar we spend must produce a satisfactory return for the residents of WOP.  Wasteful spending should be minimized and eliminated.

Vice President/Treasurer:
David Derryberry
 

Elected November 2020 

Occupation 
Retired (Electrical Engineer)

Education  
BS Engineering

Outside Activities 
Church, Travel, Reading, Yard work (my own), fishing. 

What I Would Like to Accomplish
As an engineer, I have participated on many project teams, I know the value of working together for a common goal. I understand the need to have input from all team members. I have also led many project teams and find input from all team members is even more important when one is a team leader. 

In the past, I have served as treasurer for my church, I understand how important it is to have accurate financial records and to share them with members. Also, my responsibilities as an engineer included evaluating proposals for best value. This includes quality and pricing, as well as understanding what is required and distinguishing between wants and needs. 

While I understand the timeliness required in decision making, I also understand that decisions should not be made in a vacuum. Just because one is authorized to make a decision without input from others does not mean it is the right thing to do. 


Secretary:
David Swartz


Elected November 2020  

Occupation

What I Would Like to Accomplish
I have lived in the neighborhood for almost 16 years and have seen it progress.  I think I have a balanced understanding of what homeowners want versus what the HOA can provide.  I've been a part of the ups and downs in the progress and growth of Westover and am proud to call it home.

RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Of WESTOVER PARK COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION (in summary):

 Directors must be WOP property owners, be current on their assessments, and not have been convicted of a felony or crime of moral turpitude not longer ago than twenty years

  • This is a volunteer position, elected by the general membership serving a 2-year term
  • The Board, amongst themselves, elects a President, Vice President and Secretary/Treasurer. Each officer has specific duties, but all board members have equal voting on matters requiring a board decision
  • The Board meets regularly on a quarterly basis in an open meeting with the membership and in Executive Session to discuss confidential matters such as legal issues, contracts, etc.; notice with the agenda for the meetings are posted on the website and e-mailed to the membership
  • The Board works directly with the property supervisor in giving direction and decisions they have made so the supervisor and management company may implement the actions to get the stated results. Much of this communication is done via email to be more efficient to the Directors’ time
  • A Director should expect to spend probably 5 to 8 hours a week on Association business, excluding meeting time, and this fluctuates depending on the season and major projects or challenges being addressed
  • Board members are tasked with making sound business decisions to protect the best interests of the association and adhering to state legislative requirements at the same time. They are assisted by the management company to provide them with the information they need in order to make those best decisions
  • Board members are not expected to individually deal with residents on a one-to-one basis on issues as those are filtered through the property supervisor as appropriate
  • Directors need to make themselves available to keep the communication and decision- making processes flowing properly, however, still be given the right to be a homeowner when they are not on duty so to speak
  • The Board establishes committees and provides specific purpose/goal for each committee and shall serve as liaison to each recognized committee. All committee actions are to be presented to and approved by the Board prior to initiation of said actions
